Hi there! I'm Brooke. :)
I've suffered from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, panic attacks, Trichotillomania, and the occasional derealization since age 7.
I've been on 50mg of Sertraline (Zoloft) since I was 11, and I upped it to 100mg in November 2013 due to severe panic attacks and derealization. And I can proudly say, that after two months of crying non-stop and (as terrible as it is) almost wishing for death so I could stop my thoughts, the increase in Zoloft kicked in, and I've been doing wonderful ever since! :)
I'm always here to offer advice and tips, and you can always message me for anything!
Take care and stay strong! ♡

Hi Brooke,

And welcome to the board,

Could you describe to me how you feel on the Zoloft? is it like a natural... sense of anxiety-release? I'm currently on it, I'm a little over a month into it on only 50mg. I see my psych on the 21st. Possibly going to have it upp'd.

Take care.
